Folding Chair and Ottoman

I’ve been catching up on my rss feeds, and was delighted to find this Folding Chair and Ottoman over on Cool Material. Easy to transport and easy to store, it looks like something to seriously consider if you’re short on space (or, on the run).

Inspired by the clever design of pop-up books, we developed a chair that could be used as a permanent piece of furniture in modern homes and businesses but could also be easily transported, stored, and set up. Despite the minimalistic form, it provides a comfortable and stable resting place just about anywhere.

* Made from a single sheet of plywood
* Folds flat in seconds for quick storage
* Assembles easily without tools
* Optional snap-on cushions (in 3 colors)

The chair folds down to a 60″ x 30″ rectangle, at 1 3/4″ tall.
Shipping and handling for the Folding Chair anywhere in the Continental US is $130.

Offi Trundle Desk

Extra space is always at a premium, and if you work like I do, spreading out papers and such is a necessary evil to get a job done. This desk seems to tackle that problem with ease, with an extra drawer-like surface to give you the space you need. Plus, the idea of not necessarily having to straighten up (instead just push in the drawer) is a nice thought.

Hidden cord management storage.

Café America Chair from Grain

Chain-link fencing for a chair? Well, sure, why not… though I wonder if it would snag your clothes.

Café America is a surprisingly comfortable indoor/outdoor chair. Taking inspiration from ubiquitous chain-link fencing, it recontextualizes the unsung material. A unique cushioning effect is created by the lightly tensioned chain-link seat and back. Café America is made of recycled chain-link whenever possible and flat-packs for efficient shipping and storage.

Custom color powder coating available for $100 up-charge.
Materials: Recycled galvanized steel chain-link with stainless steel rod and fasteners.
38.25″h x 17″w x 21.5″d

Knitted Pouf from CB2

Finally, an affordable pouf.

I’ve really loved the looks of the poufs from DWR, but at $1600, the cost was prohibitive to say the least. Now CB2 has come out with one in 100% cotton. The bad news: it only comes in the one color. The good news, it’s 100% cotton so it’s ripe for a quick little DIY using either bleach or Rit-dye to suit even the most sophisticated color-palates.

Dimensions
left pouf (CB2): H 14″ Diameter 20″
right poufs (DWR): H 11″ Diameter 24″ (top), H 15″ Diameter 33″ (bottom)

HOI Magazine Chair

It seems like there’s a recent trend in furniture designs where you can literally surround youself in books. The Bibliochase and the Bookinist were the first examples I’ve seen, and we mentioned the Cave shelving on the blog before, and now we have this, except this one specifically caters to magazines (not that you can’t put books on it if you wanted to).

Materials: Glass and MDF
Size: 116 cm wide x 86 cm deep x 73 cm high

Capsule Collection by Ziglam & Brook

I fell hard and fast for Deadgood when I first saw their Love Collection, and I might just have a serious crush on the Capsule Sofa and Chair. The colorful buttons and graduated tones add just the right amount of playfulness… might be the perfect thing to knock the serious edge off a room.

Webble Active Footrest

Quick, what’s your posture like right now? If it’s as bad as mine, maybe you’ll also be curious as to how this little footrest might help you improve your office ergonomics. I only wish it was a little less office-y looking. Also, how much do you want to bet a co-worker will attempt to use it as a skateboard? That could be entertaining… until they rip a hole in it, or break their wrist/nose/leg.

A movable footrest that rides on four smooth-gliding casters and provides workers with a sweeping 360-degree range of motion. Durable, breathable mesh surface supports feet with or without shoes… It’s specially designed, functional form and grippy mesh surface enable workers to instantaneously place their feet exactly at the angle that fits them best without any adjustment.

Offcut Stool by Tom Dixon

Flat packed and put together by you with no extra screws or glue, this stool sounds like it’s from Ikea… until you see the price. But, hey, if you’re as desensitized as me, $200 for a stool sounds like a bargain, especially after adding in the designer’s name.

“designed by tom dixon, the offcut stool’s elementary form is the result of several innovations; the circular round seat makes clever use of the curved offcuts, its construction requires no additional screws or glue, and the stool is flat packed for ease of delivery.”

dimensions: 17.7″dia x 17.3″h.

My Deer Stool by Jeroen Wesselink

A stool that doubles as a deer head when stored away… smart solution, don’t you think?

My Deer, a stylish and refreshing stool, available in a multitude of colours. If you don�t need it, hang it upside down on a wall hook and presto, it changes into a colourful, sleekly stylized deer head. Ideal for public spaces, where the seats can be transformed into a decorative gaily-coloured herd on the wall in just a wink… -Jeroen Wesselink
